I’m Toni McLellan, a writer and editor, public speaker, and podcast host.

A former attorney, for a decade I wrote for major magazines and websites, then transitioned to mentoring creative professionals over the past three years. In this work, I’ve hosted retreats, founded a popular social media summit that ran for six years in Chicago, and developed the Going Deep Writing Workshop series. Due to my current writing commitments, I no longer mentor writing and creative business clients.


A brief personal bio: I’m happily married to a great guy and we are raising three sons together in beautiful Loveland, Colorado. I’m also guardian to my brother, who has Down Syndrome and currently lives with us, along with two pet birds. We love exploring our new home state and playing board games together.
